How to make an attribute on RTC work item visible only to a specific group

 How to make an attribute on RTC work item visible only to a specific group?

I want an attribute on the RTC work item to be visible only to the Administrators and another specific group.
Which obviously means hiding that attribute from rest other public. 

Can somebody please whether this can be done and if yes, kindly help me with steps.

Thank you!

Hi Sangeetha,
Any one can see either entire work item or do not see work item at all. There is no function in RTC to restrict visibility to some fields/attribute only.
We cannot restrict particular attribute of a work item from particular group.

Let us know if this is an answer on your question.

Thanks a lot Abhinav for the quick answer. 

So, it concludes we can restrict attributes of a work item based on work flow states
whereas group based restriction of an attribute is not possible in RTC.

you cannot restrict by state either.. (well, only on just being created)

only field empty or not.

Hi Sangeetha,

We cannot hide the workitem, it is visible to all of them who are members of the project.

However we can restrict them from creating a specific workitem.

You can check the Team configuration->permissions->permitted actions->Save workitem-> Create a workitem->create a workitem of specific type .

You can restrict them based on the role provided.

Our approach is to create a child work item containing the attributes to be hiden, and enable restricted accessattribute to this new work item. It's not a clean solution, but it works.
